Why is it important to use a watch winder?

Posted on 16 March 2023 at 2:46 PM

A beautiful watch is often more than just a handy accessory for the modern man. Nowadays, a beautiful watch is also considered a true piece of jewelry that can complete an outfit. In addition, a luxury watch is also seen as a status symbol, or as a collector's item.

When you have carefully selected a luxury watch, you naturally want to use it as economically as possible. For a watch with an automatic movement, it depends on the correct movement in order to function. In short, this means that your automatic watch will not be wound automatically when it is not being worn. However, you will not always have your watch on your wrist. Consider, for example, at night, or in the case of alternation with another watch, also during the day. Then another solution is needed to ensure that your automatic watch does not stop.

The high-quality watch winder was created for this reason. The first watch winder was developed by the Italian Sandro Colarieti. A great admirer and owner of luxury automatic watches, he developed "a box that defied time". With this, the Italian brand Scatola del Tempo was born at the time. Over the years, more and more brands have emerged, so the development of the watch winder never stopped. Today, watch winders are available from various renowned brands in different price ranges. This is not for nothing, a watch winder is an essential accessory if you own one or more automatic watches.

You use a watch winder, among other things, to provide your automatic watch or watches with the necessary energy when you are not wearing it. The moment the watch is wound in a good watch winder, the oil in the watch is also directly regulated correctly. This benefits the life of your watch. In addition, there are more reasons to purchase a watch winder. A watch winder not only offers the necessary winding of your automatic watches, but also functions as a safe and stylish storage place for your watch or watch collection. Quality watch winders are of course designed in such a way that every automatic watch enjoys a safe way of winding when it is placed in the watch winder. In addition, a lot of care and attention is paid to the prevention of scratches and other damage. This is reflected, among other things, in the soft fabric that is often used on the inside of a watch winder. High-quality watch holders also ensure safe placement. In addition, many watch winders are lockable, so you offer your watches protection against various harmful influences. You can think of, for example, moisture and dust. There are also watch winders available that function on battery, so that they can be placed in a safe. This way you store your watch winder and watches as safely as possible. Another option is to purchase a watch winder with a modern fingerprint lock, which ensures that you are the only one who can access your watches. Finally, a beautiful watch winder can offer you the opportunity to present your watch or watch collection in a stylish way, as a kind of display. Beautiful additional functionalities such as built-in LED lighting certainly contribute to this.

Orbita Sparta Bold 1 Blue W05525 watch winder

Posted on 2 March 2023 at 2:40 PM

Since the development of the watch winder, a major problem of automatic watches has finally been solved. A watch with an automatic movement does not work on battery or by manual winding. An automatic watch can only function through movement. When you have the watch on your wrist, it is therefore automatically supplied with the necessary energy through the natural movement of the wrist. However, when the watch is not being worn, the watch does not wind up automatically. This may result in the watch standing still. When an automatic watch comes to a standstill, this can have unpleasant consequences. For example, it can cause inaccuracies in the time display. In addition, after your automatic watch has stopped, you will also have to reset any nice extra functionalities such as a date display, GMT function or moon phase indication. This is of course highly undesirable.

When an automatic watch is not worn, it can therefore be placed in a good watch winder. This then ensures that the watch is wound and is therefore always ready for use. In addition, a good watch winder also immediately provides a safe storage place for your watch or watches and ensures good oil distribution in the watch. So there are many reasons to purchase a watch winder as the owner of 1 or more automatic watches.

If you want to purchase a watch winder, it is important to opt for quality. After all, you want a safe and effective way of winding your watch or watches. There are several leading brands that offer top quality watch winders. Many of these brands are based in Switzerland, as the watch country in the world. But beautiful brands can also be found in other countries that have not only followed the development of the watch winder, but have also played an important role in the development of technology in this area. A good example of this is the Orbita brand. Orbita is based in the United States and is a brand that places innovation and innovation high on its list of priorities. The brand has several patents to its name. At Orbita, for example, you can choose between the well-known 'Programmable System' and the innovative 'Rotorwind System'. The latter system was developed by Orbita itself and takes care of the winding of automatic watches by gently 'shaking' the watch. The first mentioned system does this by means of rotation.

Within the Orbita collection you can find beautiful watch winders in the form of wooden cabinets, especially suitable for the real collector. In addition, the brand also focuses on the enthusiast who owns 1 or a few automatic watches. A watch winder suitable for winding 1 automatic watch at a time from the Orbita collection is the Orbita Sparta Bold 1 Blue W05525. This watch winder is made of plastic and blue in color. In addition, Orbita also offers this model in various other colors, such as black, brown and red. The Orbita watch winders are equipped with high-quality Swiss motors. These motors provide every type and brand of automatic watch with energy in silence, so that you can also easily place the watch winders from Orbita in a bedroom or office, for example. Moreover, these Swiss-made motors are reliable, energy-efficient and durable, which fits in perfectly with today's zeitgeist. The Orbita Sparta Bold 1 Blue W05525 offers the programs CW, CC and Alt and of course also an overwind protection. The rotor is adjustable, which ensures that you can provide your automatic watch with the most ideal way of winding. If you want to place your watch in the watch winder, you can easily attach it to the specially designed flexible watch cushion. Due to their flexibility, these cushions are suitable for almost any size automatic watch.

Watch winder with sleep mode

Posted on 23 February 2023 at 4:38 PM

Do you have one or more automatic watches and don't like them standing still? Do you want to be able to wear your automatic watches immediately without having to reset the time and date because the movement has stopped? More and more watch enthusiasts use a watch winder. A watch winder is a watch accessory that allows you to keep your automatic watches running so that you can put them on at any time of the day without having to rewind the timepiece. This watch accessory is not only very handy and offers a lot of convenience, it is also a very good accessory that ensures the preservation of your automatic watches. Because standing still is not good for an automatic timepiece.

There are many different brands and models in the field of watch winders. You can also choose from different designs, colors and functions. A function that we will discuss in this article is the sleep function and we will discuss whether this function is a valuable addition for winding automatic watches.

Let's first explain how a watch winder works. The watch winder mimics wearing a watch. Movement causes the rotor of the automatic movement to rotate, tensioning the spring in the movement. When this spring relaxes, the movement starts to run. Most watch winders rotate in circles where the rotor rotates and the movement receives energy. There are also models where the watch rotates on its own axis, such as the Bernard Favre Planet watch winders. In addition, the Orbita brand from the United States offers models in which the watch winder slowly shakes the automatic watch. All these techniques have the same result: supplying energy to the automatic watch that keeps it running.

As mentioned, in this article we discuss the sleep function of a watch winder. The sleep function is a setting where you can set the watch winder to only run during the day and to wind the watches. The watch winder remains stationary at night, just as you normally do not wear your automatic watch at night. This watch accessory simulates wearing an automatic watch even more faithfully. The biggest advantage of a watch winder with a sleep function, however, is that winding the automatic watches does not keep you awake at night. There are still brands that use motors of lesser quality where the rotation makes an audible noise. This is of course annoying when you want to sleep and the watch winder is in your bedroom. The sleep function was actually invented for those who have a watch winder (with lesser quality motors) in their bedroom. However, if you have a model with good quality motors and good insulation, a sleep function is completely unnecessary. This is the reason that, for example, the Benson watch winders are not equipped with a sleep function, simply because this function does not add anything because the Benson models are well insulated and have A-quality motors.

Watch winders with sleep function have been on the market for a while and opinions are divided about the benefits of this function. A good watch winder does not need a sleep function because it already functions almost in silence. However, this function can be useful for a relatively cheap watch winder.

If we look at the brands that we sell as an official dealer, there are a number of brands that use a sleep function. However, the most popular brands do not. Their view is that good engines and a good finish is a much better solution. In addition, a sleep function is not always easy to set up and is a complicated function for users to set up, especially because you want to be flexible and the sleep function is set for every night and for static times.

Do you need a watch winder with sleep function? As a specialist in the field of watch winders with more than 18 years of experience, our answer is “no”. Our advice is to choose a good make and model with motors that are of excellent quality. If you opt for an open watch winder without a door, you will always have a slightly higher sound level. If you choose a model with a larger capacity, for example for 4, 6 or 8 watches, you will also have a higher sound level because each motor rotates individually. Nevertheless, with a good brand, the sound level is always very low.

If you like to place the watch winder in your bedroom or in a place where you prefer to experience as little noise as possible, we advise you to choose a model with good motors and that can be closed by means of a door. This reduces the sound to virtually nil. Of course you can also choose not to place the watch winder in your bedroom, but in your living room, walk-in closet or office.

The sleep function for a watch winder is therefore really not necessary. In some cases it is a useful option, but think that it also significantly increases the price of this watch accessory. It is perhaps better to opt for a closed watch winder with excellent motors. Then you also have a watch accessory with more durability that you can enjoy for longer.
